. they are out there putting their lines on the line for us. we have to make sure that we are crystal clear for our sakes and their sakes, they are americans. we honor their service. and part of honoring their service is making sure they understand that we don't differentiate between them and us. it is just us. >> david, he could have shyed away or given shorter answers knowing there is an election 53 days away and this is quick sand perhaps and he was passionate about the issues remembering that he is president well past that election in 53 days. >> john, he seemed to resolve whatever internal doubts he may have had about this issue and come out four square and spoke from the heart and from his soul on this. i do think that he deserved points for courage given the polls and how upset many americans are. i think that he gave what is one of the best arguments that i have heard for placing the mosque here. what surprised me as well is that i thought that given what the imam's conversation with cnn a couple of nights ago in which he said, look, if i had known what i know now, i would not have
-tongued rhetoric which dragged us into it. a lot of people thought it was a good idea and yet now conveniently within britain and many other countries it's blamed on this george bush and his cleverred-tonged mood until tony blair. think think he wants to say, no i was a bigger figure than that. >> rose: also from london, an old friend of this program, john burns now the london bureau chief of the "new york times". >> we were perhaps transfixed by the relief would come to iraq with the overthrowing of saddam and yes maybe we should have spent more time difficult as it would have been under saddam to look at the trauma, the psychological trauma inflicted on iraq by the ba'ath party and saddam over a period of 30 years. all of that it can accept. if i had to do it over again i would have looked at that because it was the fractured pitch thatter that society in part along with saddam terror overground as government going underground as an insurgency that made the american venture in iraq next to impossible to achieve. >> couric: from london john and john when we come back. captioning sponsored by
. the iranian president calls the terror attacks a cover-up. sparking outrage and a walkout by the u.s. delegation. we'll have reaction from the white house. >>> caught on tape. a vicious girl fight, as one of the girls' moms appears to egg her on. why the cheers ended with charges of abuse. >>> come on, elmo. don't you want to play? >> too sexy for "sesame street"? why the children's show pulled the plug on katy perry's appearance. is it the kids? or the parents? >> there's a lot of excitement around our dinner table last night. when i told the girls that elmo and grover will be here to talk about that story, they cheered. harper wanted elmo's autograph. i'm not sure. he's only 3. >> i don't know if that can happen. perks of the job. >>> a lot 06 ground to cover in the meantime. hundreds of homes have been evacuated after flooding in wisconsin and minnesota. a state of emergency has been declared in both states. and the national guard is now sandbagging, bracing against more bad weather today. and then, there's a new tropical storm that could be heading toward the gulf. it's expected
goodness it's fox. thanks for joining us. we got three complete hours of newscasting that starts now. >> yeah, during rehearsal, it went well. hopefully it will go just as well during the live show. >> all right. breaking news overnight because this is happening in virginia. a woman has been executed for the first time in almost 100 years. theresa lewis was convicted in 2003 of plotting the murder of her husband and stepson. she apparently wanted their insurance money. she died by lethal injection. lewis' final words were for her stepdaughter. >> miss lewis did make a last statement. she said i just want kathy to know i love her. and i'm very sorry. >> protesters were outside the prison arguing that lewis was treated unfairly, apparently he was very close to the i.q. line where you're not supposed to get executed. police trying to figure out who killed a nicaraguan diplomat in his apartment in the bronx here in new york. he was found on the floor. his throat had been slashed. this just hours before he was scheduled to attend the u.n. general assembly. witnesses say there was a figh
face to face for peace talks in washington, beginning of a year long process. doug lazader joins us from washington, d.c. what kind of start did we get off to yesterday? is there any peace yet? >> well, there's peace at the white house. there will be peace around the table today, let's hope anyway. these talks are going to last a few hours. everyone at this point seems to be saying the right things but the details are where this process typically begins to fall apart. now, all of the major players did gather last night peacefully at the white house for this dinner. they're starting the gathering standing side by side. you see the president walking up to the podium. president obama was flanked by all the key players in mideast peace calling for the israeli and palestinian leaders to set aside their differences. >> we must ask, do we have the wisdom and the courage to walk the path of peace? >> well, the answer is not so easy. especially in the wake of two attacks this week on israelis carried out by hamas. still, the process moves forward with the goal of creating a palestinian sta
so that's absolutely have to be done. it's called thank you for spending a few minutes with us -- host: thank you for spending a few minutes with us. now it is time for you to chime in. allow 30 days between your calls. you can also send us say tweet -- us a tweet. one editorial from "usa today" this morning. this is an ap article. that is in "usa today." this is their lead editorial this morning. "departing congress leaves piles of unfinished business." again, "usa today" editorial. and then "usa today" goes on to talk about issues like coal mining safety, food safety, etcetera. first call up. clarence in baltimore. caller: good morning. host: clarence, we're listening. caller: i would give congress say d--- congress a d-. they are not finishing. host: what would you like to see them do? caller: i would like them to pass the middle-class tax cut so it can continue. they will probably do it after the election. host: clyde in detroit. independent line. caller: i would give the republicans an f, democrats a d. i am a true independent. hi wish republicans and democrats stop callin
their factory and equipment investment in the u.s., and i think all of those are about trying to rebuild and put us on a long run growth path and i think it's fairly important. >> in addition to that, when you look at the fact that we need 30 million jobs, not 10 or 100,000 jobs a month, we need to be adding hundreds of thousands of jobs a month just to break even considering what we've been through, and when you look at that reality and you look at these approaches knowing that we, again, in my view, and i'd be interested to hear your thoughts, we have a structural problem, how do you address the mass need for employment with a structure in this country that still incentivizes capital in many cases to leave the country to be used for either speculation or something else? >> well, look, i -- i agree with the sentiment that we want to make a level playing field. we certainly don't want a tax code that encourages people to ship jobs overseas or anything like that. we want to try to encourage real investments here in this country. that's the point of this policy with infrastructure, are r & d, with
